Public Tour: Dawoud Bey and James VanderZee

Dates: Sun Feb 18, 18

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

KIA Galleries

Dawoud Bey: Harlem USA and Harlem Redux marks Bey's return to the community 35 years later, and and the series is a departure from the portraiture for which he is known. Bey's large-format color photos reflect the transition of Harlem's character as the celebrated community becomes more gentrified and its complex history adds yet another layer. We will exhibit works from each series alongside images from our holdings of 19 James VanDerZee photographs, dating between 1900-1940.
